    Metape Indian agreements..
    Know Middlebrook Campground for 13 star flag drop Betsy Ross to GW – who named it Bound Brook
    Due to the 1 sq mile area /
    Bounded by Brooks & Rivers

    Dad also built Twin Rivers NJ
    Planned community 1971 located at the open plains where Metape Indians dwelled
    We never found any Metape Artifacts growing up when in the woods Brooks River or during const excavations at all 3 locations .
